School Supply List

Each year parents are asked to provide basic school supplies for their children such as paper, writing utensils, and notebooks. These supplies vary from grade level to grade level and from school to school, and sometimes individual teachers and courses have special requirements.

APS, Rio Rancho and other school district elementary and middle schools provide information at registration on what supplies are required for their students and post their school supply lists on their websites. These lists are available before the state’s annual back-to-school tax-free holiday in August. High schools generally do not post grade level lists because the needs vary considerably from course to course.

Middle and High School Supplies

Supply lists for middle and high school students vary widely from school to school and class to class. Students are encouraged to bring paper and something to write with on the first day of school.
